Our all-natural dry body brush is made from sustainable beechwood and semi-stiff sisal fibers to stimulate the body's circulation, lymphatic system and invigorate the skin. Dry brushing helps unclog pores and excrete toxins, exfoliates skin, removes dead skin cells, boosts circulation and promotes smoother and softer skin.
Dry brushing is best done on dry skin before you shower or bathe.
Beginning with your feet, brush your skin upwards in long, sweeping strokes toward your heart to encourage lymph flow to the body’s lymph ducts. Move up to your ankles, calves, thighs, and buttocks.
Continue towards your hips, then move onto your stomach and back.
Finish with your arms, starting at the palm of your hands and brushing up to your shoulders.
Avoid areas that are cut or irritated, and vary the pressure you apply based on what feels right for each part of your body. If it feels particularly good to brush a certain area, feel free to spend more time there – your body is calling for that love. Feel the difference as your lymphatic system releases toxins, smoothes your skin and rejuvenates your body.
To maximize the benefits of detoxing your skin, follow with our Grapefruit + Hibiscus Toning Body Scrub and Grapefruit + Birch Toning Body Oil.
TAKING CARE OF YOUR DRY BRUSH:
Dry brushing, as the term suggests, does not require the use of water. It’s done using a completely dry brush on dry skin.
To prolong the life of your brush it is recommended that you store your dry brush in a place free from water and dampness and clean it on a regular basis.
Keep in mind that, when cleaning your dry brush, the wooden base and handle should not come into contact with water. This is because water weakens the wood and may cause it to crack and rot.
To clean your brush, brush the bristles of your body brush against a dry towel or tap the bristles against the inside of a dry sink to remove dead skin particles.
Fill a dish with water enough to submerge the bristles of the brush but not get the wood wet. Add a mild antibacterial soap and 3-4 drops of tea tree essential oil.
With the bristles touching the dish, move your body brush throughout the water, distributing the soap and tea tree oil amongst the bristles. Do this for 30 to 45 seconds.
Dump the water and refill the dish with plain, clean water. Repeat the process of moving your brush against the bottom of the dish.
Let your brush air dry by placing it on top of a clean towel with the bristles facing downward. Or speed up the process by gently drying it with a hairdryer.
